Several villages were ruined as a consequence of the
rebellion of Haniani Timmappa in S. S. 1423, * while Narasa
Navaka was reigning. Xittur was in a desolated condition for
fourteen years, until S. S. 1442, Vikrama.

During the reign of Saluva (Ininiadi) Narasinihadeva
Maharaya, the lord of the throne of Vidyanagara, this village
(Eamesvaiam) was given as nayankara to a certain Rampa
Kannama Nayaka by Narasa Nayaningaru, the king's agent.
Ramesvara, together with the village of Prodduturu was in his
possession for some time. While this Saluva (Ininiadi) Nara-
simharaya was reigning, Narasa Nayaka, who was governing
the kingdom, was dismissed from his office, and Nadindla
Timmarasayya (a Brahman) of the Aruvela (Niyogi) caste, was
appointed minister (pradJmni) in his place. An inscription
dated S. S. 1420, Kalaynkti, Margasira ba. 30 found in. the
ranga-maatapa of the temple of Ramayadeva at Remesvarain
shows that Ramesvaram and Proddnturu were given to Rampa
Kannama Nayaka for nayankara while Narasa Nayaka was the
head of the government.
When Nadindla Timmarasayya assumed the management
of the affairs of state, he bestowed Ramesvaram on Sahiva
Guvindaraja, a son of Raciraja as nayankara; and the latter
granted the village to the God Ramalmga for the maintenance
of the daily worship. This gift is recorded in an inscription on
a slab set up in the ma&tapa opposite the gopura of the temple
dated S. S. 1430, Prabhava, Karttika STL. 15.
Kaiftyat of Duvvur, L. X. 18, pp. 38-40.
Then   Sahiva   (Immadi)  Narasingaraya   dispensed   with
the   services   of  Narasa     Nayaka    and    appointed   Saluva
Tnnmara&ayya   as his deputy.    While   this   Timmarasayya
was carrying on the administration of the state,  a deputation
* Tfeis &to is too late for Nwata Nayaka.
